President Shimon Peres was the guest of honor in the city of Jerusalem's main Mimouna celebration on Monday.
"I believe that Passover this year was the best the people have known in recent times. Never has there been such a flourishing concentration of Jews, close to 7 million, as there is today. Never have we had such security capacity with IDF at the center as we do today," Peres said. (Ronen Medzini)
